The customer required maximum product flow control. Multi-Conveyor’s electrical team used photo eyes and reflectors across incremental targeted locations to precisely detect and engage product stop and start motion.
In this video, Multi-Conveyor shows how it removed one box of product to show how the system senses the opening, then triggers prior sections of MDR to activate and move product forward to close the gap. Likewise, the guiderail prevents the product from going beyond the conveyor frame, providing even more control.
24VDC power supplies and drive cards are housed in stainless steel boxes mounted on the roller conveyor frames. Each drive card controls two drive rollers—one per section. The drive cards operate using standard accumulation logic, allowing the conveyor zones to remain full during production.
A seamless transition transfers boxes from the roller section to a 90° dual strand or dual lane case turner. Opposing belt speeds rotate cases to be accepted into an elevator ahead.
NOTE: Multi-Conveyor does not build gravity roller or stationary roller systems.
